As Calgary grows, our pathway and bikeway capacity needs to develop to ensure a safe and enjoyable space for everyone.
The 3 Avenue South Walking and Wheeling Upgrades Project aims to make it easier to walk and wheel along the corridor while providing vital East and West connections to our existing network. The 2018 Centre City Bicycle Volume Map shows that 3 Avenue South is one of the busiest cycling routes in the centre city. Creating a high-quality facility, that is accessible for all ages and abilities, will address some pedestrian and traffic safety concerns that have been raised in past engagement with the communities of Chinatown and Eau Claire, and pathway users along the Bow River and River Walk pathways.
A dedicated option for people wheeling provides separation between people travelling at different speeds, which improves safety, predictability and comfort. Using the Always Available for All Ages and Abilities (5A) Network principles approved by council in January 2020, the 3 Avenue South upgrades will work to increases comfort, safety, connectivity and accessibility for all users. We know that Calgarians want walkable communities, with convenient and attractive connections to neighbours, shopping, services, cultural experiences, natural spaces, workplaces and educational opportunities. Pathways and bikeways provide them with the ability to connect with these destinations.
The project will improve active transportation connections to businesses, residences, transit, and existing pathways and bikeways. There is an increased demand for sidewalk space along 3 Avenue and the River Walk pathway, and providing an on-street alternative will help to alleviate the strain on sidewalk capacity in the area. By moving mobility devices such as scooters, in-line skates, and skateboards off of sidewalks into accessible pathways and bikeways enables people of all abilities to travel in the area comfortably.
We are launching this project in coordination with the Eau Claire Area Improvements so that we can find efficiencies and connectivity with other projects in the area while addressing the impact to the community. We know that future development in the Eau Claire Area means there will be a need for alternative routes for walking and wheeling when the existing Bow River Pathway is closed due to construction or in the event of high water levels on the Bow River. Doing the work now supports our intent to create resilience in the area and future-proof our pathway and bikeway network
The upgrades being made for people who walk and wheel in the area include:
Why 3 Avenue South?
Relevant Policies and Plans
3 Avenue South was identified as a cycling connection in several plans and policies:
The input collected during this phase of engagement will be used to inform and refine the design concepts that will be presented back to the community. Input received through this engagement will be one of many factors considered as the proposed design and supporting materials are created. Other considerations could include technical and feasibility studies, community and economic conditions, and previous engagement results.
The project team also recognizes that significant engagement has occurred in the plan area, including previous engagement for Eau Claire Public Realm, Tomorrow’s Chinatown, the Green Line, Flood mitigation, and pathway and bikeway plans. This feedback has not been lost and will also be taken into consideration as well.
